    The 5 stars are entirely and exclusively for James Sherwood's story, "Stradella," which contains lines like these: "She plucked me like a dandelion. I sank my toe in her apple." "She waved her arms like wands of high magic." And this great racket of a sex scene: "I threw her against a wall. She stuffed me in a drawer. I played in her pudendum, a kitten over pudding. She sighed and swung from a lamp. I crawled up the Venetian blinds. She whimpered and fell off the bed and split in 69 slivers.

She sighed and swung from a lamp. I crawled up the Venetian blinds. She whimpered and fell off the bed and split in 69 slivers. I pieced them together 9 times by 7 and had 6 left over which I ate. She wiped her lips with a spoonful of ice cream. I polished her toenails with ear wax. She made rings with her locks and a collar of braid. Our heads bumped in a pillowcase, condemned Siamese twins, and we waltzed over the upholstery, jigsaw puppets. She became the wall clock and I the hands. I wound up her back and she chimed the beats by seconds. She had the pendulum and I had the weights." I read this in high school & have never come across its rival; I keep this big, heavy block of a book just to make sure that dandelion line stays within reach.

    This was gifted to me on valentine's day by my husband. I adore this book. It has a series of erotic short stories and each tale is prefaced by a story by Maurice Girodias who talks about what they had to go through to publish each story. Most of these stories were written in the 1950's and so the editor had to deal with having his work confiscated for pornography, by the French police. Dark tales like The Story of O, and Spartacus come to mind. This was gifted to me on valentine's day by my husband. I adore this book.

    Remember when "erotica" was more porny? Remember when "erotica" was more porny?
